Don't know if these can be classified as small turnings

Some bowls I just finished and put in the booth at the museum market place...
Four of them are from some Cherry that one of my fellow vendors gave me... the wood had some burls that made for some spectacular pattern grains.... the other two are from a tree I got from my neighbor called Paulownia - an invasive Chinese tree that can be very beautiful in spring with long strands of lavendar blossums. the wood is very light weight and difficult to cut smooth even with very sharp tools... requires a lot of sanding.

This one had a large hole that I filled with the sawdust from turning the bowl blank.... 8 3/4 inches diameter by 3 1/2 inch high. finished with poly urethane.

These two are both about 6" diameter and about 2" high... the second is from a burl knot on the side of the log my friend brought.

Great looking bowls!

Just drove through Telico last week. Bluebonnet trails still going on down here.
